This tweet struck us yesterday as the perfect microcosmic example of the consequences of internet shutdowns.
India is by the worst culprit in shutting down the internet, with 177 known shutdowns
since 2012. African countries are doing their best to compete, with Cameroon, Ethiopia, and Chad among the guiltiest parties
Internet shutdowns cost countries $2.4 billion USD
in 2016. That's a lot of supplies not delivered, a lot of orders not taken, a lot of bills unpaid, a lot of products unused.
While a VPN can't help you when an ISP or a government completely turns off internet access, it can help when only certain websites and apps are blocked. Why not take advantage of our limited time offer of one year of unlimited VPN data for $20.18 USD
